I created this quick recipe for one simply by using what I had in the refrigerator. Now it's a favorite of mine! —Sarah Manary, Woodmere, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Bake: 20 min. YIELD:1 servings


  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast half (5 ounces)
  • 4 tablespoons Italian salad dressing, divided
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Dash salt
  • 1 slice provolone cheese (3/4 ounce)


  • 1. Place 3 tablespoons salad dressing in a large resealable plastic bag; add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

"I have made this recipe over and over again we love it. We use pepper jack cheese instead and while the chicken is on the stove cooking, we cut 1- serrano pepper and remove it when it goes to the oven. Wonderful!!"
